Campaign Map (after Kenebraes) - Leading your legion

So I completed the battle of Kenebraes and began the tactical section where my army is supposed to attack Dresden. I’d like to share my initial experience of this:

I started out moving around the map with my character and did a side quest (an imp and a ring) then went to the first demon army.

  1. I was able to move on top of the demon army but nothing happened
  2. I couldn’t enter the demon army or otherwise engage it like a location normally would

Then I noticed I had a ‘legion’ marker too and that I could move that around as well.

  1. I moved the legion to the demons first army to fight it
  2. My army had 100 men and we won but lost 50 men

I then ran out of movement for the legion. I assumed that to move further I maybe needed to rest.

  1. I moved my player piece on top of the legion but there didn’t seem to be a way to join it or rest with them or anything.
  2. I clicked camping button to see if that would give me more movements but I was unable to hunt so had to use supplies instead
  3. After resting my army got more movement for my legion (although now I am thinking that pressing ‘skip day’ would probably have done the trick)

I moved to the next demon army with my legion and promptly got wrecked.

I recruited another army and moved them to my party playing piece bit again there didn’t seem to be any way to ‘lead them’ or merge the two peices.

This time I took the legion to a different demon army (this time they had a castle icon and seemed to block my parties movement).

When I fought these guys there was a giant cultist on the other side. He seemed to cast bane so I assumed maybe he was the enemy general? How do I get to be the general of my own army!? Is there any way for me to have my party help out or actually join the legion?

I feel like my 100 swordsmen would really benefit from a few fireballs on their side.

You can hire general, but cannot make one out of companions or MC.
To hire general, next to Army 1 tab that shows movement points is Setting button. Generals have great passives, but attack spells are really weak(kills 1-2 enemy), buffing your biggest unit is better.

Yes, Skip Day button is helpful for this, also moving your party passes time too so during that movement points also can get restored.

Also generals get exp when they participate in fights, meaning if only 1 general is in all fights his units can become very strong.

Thanks for the tips, I will have another go.
